A pilot study: strengthening university business engagement through staff secondments

One means of strengthening university-business engagement is through university staff secondment programmes supporting staff from across the university to engage with business and integrate that experiential learning into the curriculum and professional support activities.

The study reports on the findings of a HEA funded project with Aston Edinburgh and Nottingham Universities to inform the curriculum and support graduate employability.  The pilot programme has examined key issues affecting the area of research curriculum design and relationship building related to both the internal and external environment.

This study is relevant as it makes a series of recommendations which are intended to strengthen the university-business engagement opportunities in the areas of collaborative practice teaching and learning quality enhancement and university – work student transitions.
